"Today is the first day of what's left of your life," announces villain The Mandarin (Ben Kingsley) in the latest trailer for Iron Man 3. Indeed, if you caught the first trailer for Iron Man 3, you know things aren't looking good for Tony Stark. He's having a depressive streak after the incident in New York (see: The Avengers) and he's having trouble sleeping, perpetually worried about his true love, Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow). It's an ideal time for the goose-bumps-worthy Mandarin to slip in and shake him down. It's not all bad, though: while this new trailer is just as chilling as the first, it's also more hopeful. Tony has enemies, but he's also got friends — lots of them, in their very own Iron Man-like suits.
Though I'm holding out hope that good prevails over evil, I find The Mandarin to be simply terrifying. He's got a unique look, but it's Kingsley's voice that sends shivers down my spine. Mostly I fear for Pepper, who I'd like to think survives, but Tony's proclamation of "revenge" at the end of the trailer makes me wonder if she makes it out alright. Iron Man 3 hits theaters on May 3, but until then, you can watch the new trailer after the jump.
